A report was released this spring entitled The Gendered Lens: A Report on Women’s Experiences with Video Surveillance and Urban Security in Toronto. Silver Circle – West Toronto Services for Seniors had a role in contributing to the report by arranging to have a group of our clients participate. The project looked at various women in different demographics to see how they felt about surveillance cameras in public places. In recognition of the different groups of women, participants were recruited from a variety of community based organizations. The project was funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and published by Ryerson University with the research done by Emily van der Meulen & Amanda Glasbeek.
